IS committing horrific sex crimes against Yazidi girls

Zainab Bangura, UN envoy on sexual violence, who visited Iraq and Syria said that teenage girls abducted by Islamic State fighters are being sold in slave markets “for as little as a pack of cigarettes.” She lamented “a war that is being fought on the bodies of women.” Many teens, part of the Yazidi minority targeted by the jihadists, were stripped naked and then made to stand in front of men who pick and choose. She spoke to women and girls who had escaped from captivity in IS-controlled areas, met with local religious and political leaders and met refugees in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan. Abducting girls has become a key part of the IS strategy to recruit foreign fighters.
